8 out of 10 women polled by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons said their shoes were painful.

9 out of 10 women wear shoes that are too small, according to the same survey.

In 1986, 12% of American women had shoe sizes 9.5 and higher. In 1994, that number increased to 17%. In 1998, 30.4% of all women’s shoes sold were sixe 9 and above.

A sample survey showed that 60% of women’s feet increased in shoe size since age 20.

The average increase in the protrusion of a woman’s buttocks is 25% when she wears high heels.

  1. Hi,
    I stumbled on this site looking for the answer to a trivia question. Would you be able to help?
    “The question is 1 out 9 adults in the USA own a pair of these…”
    So far when people have answered things such as “argyle socks” or “bowling shoes” they have been close. So I am assuming that the answer has something to do with a pair of shoes.
    What do you think?

    Thanks in advance for your help. 🙂


  2. Great article – you’ve inspired me to go out and find stats for British women so I can write a similar blogpost for the good ol U of K!
